Artist Statement

 

Boat-like forms feature in this exhibition as a reference to their importance as metaphors; The spiritual/physical journey, The sense of place/homelessness; Salvation/being cast adrift; The search for (so called) meaning. The figurative elements are reminiscent of Nolan’s depictions of Ned Kelly. To me the figures present somewhat forlorn figures, peering out on a hostile landscape through a slot in a hand fashioned helmet. In the end the armour offering him no protection at all. As such the figure (Ned if you like) represents a part of the human psyche or sense of being; Whilst clothed against some perceived danger we (and perhaps ‘we’ as peculiarly Australians) look outward with some trepidation towards the world at large.
